100 points
Due January 27, 2014

Task: You will create a diorama of Ancient Egypt.

1) Inside a shoebox, you must show one or more of the following concepts:
- The Nile River and what it provided to the people of Egypt
- Pyramids and the Sphinx
- The mummification process
- A tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh and all his treasures
- The social structure of Ancient Egypt (upper class, middle class, lower
- The daily life of the middle class (scribes writing, artisans making
clothing or tools, farming, children playing)
- Egypt Geography physical features of Egypt

*Cover the outside of the box with construction paper or butcher paper.

2) On the back of the box, you must write at least 2 well-written paragraphs
about one of the following pharaohs: Queen Hatshepsut, Khufu, Tutankhamen,
and Ramses II
- It must include a colored illustration (either printed, or neatly drawn)

3) On one of the sides of the box, draw and color a map of Ancient Egypt. Be
sure to include: The Nile River, The Nile Delta, Lower Egypt, Upper Egypt, Giza,
Nubian Desert, Arabian Desert, The Red Sea, The Mediterranean Sea, the Dead

4) On the other side of the box, write the following:

- The heading (name, class, period, date)
- A word in hieroglyphics: your name or an appropriate word

*Things to keep in mind:

- You may use library books, history books and the internet, but you are NOT
allowed to copy it word for word. It must be written in your own words.
- Put some effort! Research the topic you chose. Get more information to make
your project interesting. Teach me something.
- DO NOT wait until the last minute! If you do parts of it one day at a time, you
will not stress out and your project will reflect hard work.
